What's the deal with IE7?

Post icon  Posted 25 June 2008 - 01:22 PM

Are there known code issues with IE 6 and 7 that cause a webpage to come up blank with a "done: but with errors"?
I've been developing a site that works fine in FF and Safari, but my boss went to open it in IE7 and it just comes up blank.

Can MS get anything right?

______________

Forget the above, One computer needed a Java update and the other needed an IE7 update.

I'm still having problems with the DIV tags being read right in IE7.
Also, A java banner "slideshow" I got form Jon's design doesn't well..."slide" ...
Any known issues with JAVA and DIV tags in IE6 &7?

I doubt it has anything to do with IE, it sounds as if you forgot to close a tag, or there's a problem with the Javascript you're using. I know in IE if you forget to close a tag sometimes it will just show a blank page, yet FF will display it anyways

Are you using Javascript like this?:
<script type='text/javascript' href='foobar.js' />


If you are, change it to this and you should be fine:
<script type='text/javascript' href='foobar.js'> </script>

Nope, I'm using the full closing tag.

Well, the site opens after a Java update, but the java slideshow doesn't slide and DIV tags seem screwed up. However they work fine in FF, Safari and Opera.
I thought of an open tag somewhere, but I havent seen a Java script run in Safari or Opera if he script is jacked. I was wrong once though. :)
